The Greenhouse,

is about growing matters, focusing on my greenhouse and potager. I grow mainly vegetables, herbs and spices but flowers have their given place too. From seed to table, this is the nursery for my living food, we cook a lot of delicious food and I say a potager is the cook’s best friend. The greenhouse makes it possible to grow essential, colourful, warmth loving fruit and vegetables even in this climate such as tomatoes and chillies. My main blog is Tyras Trädgård/Tyra's Garden.

Mixed tomato salad...
...
...
... just add a flavoursome dressing and a nice piece of bread and you got yourself a great summer lunch.
...
This is my favourite dressing.
...
My own creation - it is strong in taste so you do not need to take a lot of it.
...
~ Tyra's special dressing ~
...
Chop up 1 small red onion
add 1 teaspoon of mustard and mayo
½ cup of vinegar (red or balsamico)
½ cup of virgin olive oil
Fresh herbs - parsley, thyme, basil and tarragon
1 Garlic clove
Salt and pepper
...
Top off the salad with seeds, nuts and black olives.
...
Bon Appétit!/ TYRA

Smaklig måltid!

Frances I'm so glad you enjoyed it.
I can recommend a slightly more unhealthy supplement, a glass of wine :-)

Där var du, kan tänka du haft en underbar tid till sjöss! Tomater är underbara, har inga egna, men vi köper från en odlare "nästgårds". Jag har sagt det förut, men jag tycker ditt växthus är så vackert!

ps. Jag har lite lagt ned den endelska versionen av min blogg, så det ser ut som om jag inte uppdaterat på fem veckor. Men http://motstravigtradgardsdesigner.blogspot.com/ lever och har hälsan.

Ha det gott!

What a beautiful composition for the eye Tyra... and a savory light lunch... a bit of bread to mop up your delicious dressing and a glass of wine seems healthy and fine! Great post as always.

Hello Tyra, I have missed you! What enticing photos today and I love the sound of your dressing. My husband and I love tomatoes and this sounds delicious. Thanks for visiting.

Om du ska skriva på engelska kanske du ska kolla stavning/gramatik först.

Det heter inte:

by the see (sea)

I have now harvest (harvested) my first

I had forgot (forgotten) it.

you got yourself (have) a great summer lunch.

Tack sååå mycket kära Anonynous jag blev verkligen glad att du rättar mej. Att någon bryr sig om stavningen i min blogg :-) Jag skriver på engelska för att bli bättre och för att 'träffa' människor ifrån världens alla hörn. Jag sitter inte och kör rättstavning på allt, skriver mest rakt ifrån hjärtat. Ha det gott M.v.h Tyra

Till Anonymous...hm stavas inte grammatik med två m och inte som du skriver med ett m gramatik...

mvh Tyra

Jag fick nyss en påse tomater av min mor, som odlat dem på sin lilla balkong.
